|AGR Field Operations in Cheshire has launched a new girth weld scanning system for pipelines.
The TD Pipe-Runner was developed in collaboration with industry experts and provides a robust and versatile platform for overland pipeline ultrasonic inspection. The scanner accommodates pipe diameters from 6 to flat and its propulsion is fully automated but may also be manually propelled if necessary.
The TD Pipe-Runner is an ideal tool for the zonal discrimination technique of weld evaluation using a combination of Phased Array and Time of Flight Diffraction.
The TD Pipe-Runner utilises the latest AGR technology, using the TD Focus Scan with built in motor drive capability.
